Going news, market movers and tips on a manic Monday with seven meetings

Killarney: racing at the track starts at 5.05
1 of 1

Something of a manic Monday with seven fixtures to start a week that also includes York's Dante meeting and ends with the Group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge at Newbury.

Wolverhampton kicks things off on the all-weather at 1.50, while there is Flat turf racing at Catterick, Tipperary and Windsor, where the highlight is the Listed Weatherbys Racing Bank Supporting Mental Health Foundation Stakes.

Ruth Carr runs Sovereign Debt in that and said: "The change in the going to good to soft won't worry him, and so we're looking forward to it."

Monday cards

Jumping comes from Kempton, Towcester and Killarney, which stages a Grade 3 chase and its version of a National.

Entries for the weekend are also due.

What to read

David Simcock will not mind being reminded of his first Classic win thanks to Teppal in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches, while Olmedo was too good in the Poule d'Essai des Poulains, but not everyone was happy at Longchamp.

Lee Mottershead's column is, as usual, a must-not-miss read, while our expert jury take a look at the weekend talking points.

What to watch

Seee how busy a boy Nathaniel is ...

The best of Racing Post Sport

The team tackle the crucial Fulham-Derby tie.

Final thought 

No-one wants to see the scenes Goodwood and Ascot have experienced recently – members of the crowd fighting – so let's hope we're talking about the action on the track at York and Newbury this week, and not what's going on off it.
